A carrick bend loop or carrick loop is a knot used to make a reliable and stable loop at the end of a rope formed by the tail turned around and attached to the main part using a carrick bend.
The carrick bend knot closing the carrick bend loop will consist of
- a simple closed loop of the main part and
- a small closed loop of the rope tail
- woven together in a basket weave pattern and then
The knot will have 8 crossing points, 7 holes, the central hole with 4 straight edges, and the 6 others with 2 straight and one external curved edge. The main part, the end, and the two loop edges will enter the knot from the four corners of the knot when tied flat; If the ones that will carry the heaviest loads are placed at opposite corners the knot will hold better.
